It's always time for tea

A Moment Of Weakness

It was a lovely sunny day, so I wanted to use the opportunity and take Robbert out to shoot some outfit photos. I had styled an outfit around this new burgundy red faux fur vest that I bought in Austria. When I saw this piece in the store, I instantly fell in love. Burgundy is one of my favourite colours to wear, as I’m sure you know, and I love pretty much everything else about it as well. The length, the cut, the fact that it has no sleeves… When I tried it on at the store and my mom said “you have to get this”, I said “yeah. Robbert’s going to hate it though”. I’ve always been a bit more daring with my outfit choices than your average Dutch girl. Jeans and a shirt is the norm here, wear anything more and people will think you’re arrogant and pretentious. I’m kind of used to giving off a first impression of arrogance and pretentiousness, and I’m generally fine with it as this impression is easily melted away by a bright smile and a cheerful “hello”.

A Roller Coaster Of A Week | Loepsie’s Life

Happy Monday everybody, and happy equinox! I’m going to go ahead and just say it’s been a while since I’ve been this glad for a week to be over. Last week was… Intense. The moment I came home from my holiday I unknowingly got on a crazy roller coaster ride that lasted the whole week. Something went wrong with my secret project which needed to be fixed right away, I discussed an amazing offer that’s ridiculously exciting but super scary at the same time, I had to prepare a fun, engaging 45-minute workshop for the weekend, and besides all of that I had to film videos and write posts on the day they go up, as I was out of pre-produced content. All of these deadlines and really big, important things right after coming home and having left my family in another country once more, were a little bit too much for me to take. I’m actually really proud of myself for getting almost everything done and only breaking down a little bit, haha 🙂 Anyways, as my mind was occupied by other things and I wasn’t feeling my best in general, I didn’t take a great many photos last week. I’m still going to show you what I did take though!

March Weekend Loves #1

Welcome to the weekend, my lovely readers! As we speak, I’m at the I Love Beauty event to give a workshop in Hair Hacks, have a little meetup, browse the stalls, meet new people and have fun.
In case you’re staying in and are looking for something to watch, read or listen to, I’ve got you covered! Here are some of my favourite things of this week:

This Show

I have a total love/hate relationship with The Magicians. The storyline gets really, really bad sometimes and it’s weak overall, but the show is very aesthetically pleasing and for some reason I can’t stop watching it. What to expect? In a nutshell: sexually frustrated college-aged Harry Potter goes to Narnia. Not literally of course, but the resemblances are very striking. I know I’m not making this sound appealing at all hahaha, sorry! I binge-watched most of season two while I was on holiday and I really enjoyed it, although some of the plot turns make me laugh out loud or facepalm. It’s easy entertainment I guess, as long as you don’t expect too much of this show it’s very enjoyable. The Harry Potter-esqueness has been dropped in season two and I feel like it’s become better overall. Something fun if you need to kill some time!
